Janie’s art teacher sent me a scanned copy of her oil pastel third-grade art project today.
In my completely biased opinion—which is based solely on blatant favoritism and lack of artistic knowledge—it’s beautiful:
And it brightened my day.
EDITED TO ADD:
I showed Janie the above blog entry just now, and I wish you could have seen her smile–it rivaled the glow of that little planet in the right-hand lower corner.
“How did you . . . ? I’m in the blog?” She hugged me and did her happy jump at the same time. “That is so cool, Mommy!”
“It’s gorgeous, honey.”
“Thanks! But it’s upside-down.”
I looked at it. “Are you sure? Your teacher sent it that way.”
“She did? I’m sure. That little planet is supposed to be here. No,wait. Here.”
“Upside-down and reversed?”
Who am I to argue with the artist?*
Hmmm . . .
I still like it.
*Rhetorical, if you don’t mind.
